Most in the Fortnite community would agree that new interactive Shopping Carts have been a successful addition to the popular Battle Royale title.

Not only do many find the new vehicles fun to use, they can also prove very useful when trying to quickly escape the Storm or get out of tight situations.

However, there appears to be a new glitch involving the Shopping Carts that is allowing players to access the Spawn Island, the pregame area where players wait for the Battle Bus to take them into the game.

Previously, the island was inaccessible once the match started, and anyone trying to build or glide to it would come up against an invisible wall surround the island that would not allow them to progress.

A video posted by YouTuber ‘OrangeGuy’ shows the method of how to access the island, and it appears to require more than one person, a Shopping Cart, a very large amount of materials, and some luck.

Here are the steps, according to the video, of how to use the new Shopping Cart glitch to access the Spawn Island.

  1. To start this glitch off, go as close as you can to the Spawn island and make the same structure as we did.
    1. The structure is a long bridge built from the Main Ssland to the Spawn Island.
    2. At the end of the bridge, there is a long, downward angled ramp with a sharp upward incline at its end.
  2. Once you’ve done that, simply push yourself off with that cart and pray that you make it! 😀
  3. Now just try to aim yourself towards the island, and if you are luck you will make it!! 😀

Obviously this endeavor is essentially a one way trip, since the Storm will surely eliminate anyone who goes that deep into it with now fast way back.

However, the end result is quite remarkable and unique as not many people can say they’ve made it to Spawn Island once the match has already started.


How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
